How to open compost bin

Posted: 20/07/2014 at 15:07

Its a bit like a security catch on medicine containers. There is a lug at the front/top  you have to line up the handle before it will open. The problem is that i am not sure if the handle has to be vertical or horizontal to it.

Just give them a little tug. If they come out easily they are the valuable plant.

Beech hedge problem

Posted: 20/07/2014 at 13:09

Hi REM. 

The leaves look healthy.

Did you take cuttings and grow them on yourself?

If not you might have a purple beech variety in amongst the green?

History & uses of Fagus sylvatica Purpurea
Copper beech is a natural variant of green beech: about 1 in every 1000 green beech seeds will turn out to have at least partially purple or brown leaves. One of the earliest records identifying beech trees with purplish leaves dates back to Germany in the late 1400's. 
Copper Beech
, also called Purple Beech, may be listed as Fagus sylvatica purpureaatropurpurea oratropunicea. They are all the same tree.
